Tennis latests updates from RNClub.com? “Think of the best defenders in Premier League history — John Terry, Rio Ferdinand, and Nemanja Vidic. [Virgil] Van Dijk is all three players rolled into one.” Those were the words of former Liverpool and England star Jamie Redknapp, according to Goal. A bold statement, but one difficult to argue with given just how excellent the Dutchman has been since his move to Anfield in early 2018. His Terry-esque heart, his Ferdinand-esque brain, and Vidic-esque physicality have transformed Liverpool’s back four into the best in Europe. Should Jurgen Klopp’s side win its first ever Premier League title as expected this season, a lot of credit will, and rightly so, go to Van Dijk.
Let’s set aside for now the question of Cook’s reported intention to hold out heading into his contract year, as well as the observation made by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero that the new collective bargaining agreement would make a holdout “virtually prohibitive.” Yards after contact and yards after the catch are two categories in which Cook really drove his value, and he projects to continue driving even more value there going forward. His ability to earn chunk yardage showed up in the fact that he logged 73 rushes of at least 15 miles per hour, the most among RBs in 2019 — only Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had more. Reaching these speeds often means having and/or finding open lanes and forcing missed tackles. Last season, Cook earned 10 touchdowns on rushes outside the tackles, tying Derrick Henry for the most in the NFL, per NGS.
The reigning MVP who is about to take home his second straight award gets my nod as the best player in the NBA today. The Greek Freak is a machine. He is nearly unguardable due to his size and speed that allow him to get to the rim nearly every time. He’s averaging cartoonishly impressive per game statistics along with great defensive numbers — all in just under 31 minutes per game. His Milwaukee Bucks are blowing everyone out every night and have the best record in the NBA. He may also take home the Defensive Player of the Year award along with his MVP. Giannis Antetokounmpo does everything you want a superstar to do, and did I mention he’s been working on his shooting ability too? And he’s still only 25? Look out. This is Antetokounmpo’s league — we’re all just living in it. Read extra details on Ben Roethlisberger Net Worth Biography.
When the first tee ball sets sail next week in the Charles Schwab Challenge at esteemed Colonial Country Club, three months will have passed since someone hit a meaningful shot on the PGA Tour. Feels more like 180 days. A year even. Since the Players Championship was grounded on Friday the 13th in March, it has felt like groundhog day, and we’ve done our best Bill Murray trying to get through living the same day over and over again. At least we were afforded an abundance of time to ponder what we’ve missed and what we used to take for granted. A haircut, for instance. Happy hour. A high-five. A high fade.
Fury has pivoted from his previous stance that next year might be his last in boxing. He said on Instagram recently: “I’m coming to the end of my contract with Top Rank. I have two more fights left with those guys. I want to renew it. I don’t want to just walk away after two more fights. “I know that we can break history with the biggest fight contract in the history of boxing, bigger than Floyd Mayweather, bigger than Canelo Alvarez, bigger than Mike Tyson, bigger than everybody. “After I wipe out the two dossers in Wilder and Joshua, then the world is my oyster. I want to see that big contract come from ESPN, or whoever is out there, battling to get The Gypsy King on their station.” See even more information at here.
